An insightful play that studies the challenges we face in a foreign land, and where or to whom we belong. Dubai seems to offer British twenty-somethings Greg and Holly everything they could want: tax-free income, a brand new apartment and an exotic landscape waiting to be explored. But surviving on the edge of a desert, in a society they don't understand, proves more difficult than they could have imagined. They soon start to question why it is they came, and whether they'll ever get home.
Alexandra Wood is a British playwright. Her work includes The Eleventh Capital (Royal Court), Unbroken (Gate Theatre) and an adaptation of Wild Swans (Young Vic / American Repertory Theatre). Her 2007 play The Eleventh Capital won her the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright.
